The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has had a Conference in Levittown since 1955.  They are part of an international organization of men and women who seek, in a prayerful spirit of justice and charity, and by person-to-person involvement, to be present to those who are suffering.

The Vincentians meet on a regular basis to decide how best to meet the needs that are presented to them.  These needs might be financial, assistance with clothing and furniture, transportation, or sometimes a caring presence and listening ear. A key to their ministry is the “home visit” where two Vincentians meet those in need at their residence if their need is greater than the food which they can take from the pantry.

Our Conference is supported by parishioners who donate on a regular basis, the money deposited in the poor boxes, the “blue envelopes” at Christmastime, and the proceeds from the Friends of the Poor Walk.  The Vincentians are privileged to serve those in need, in the name of our faithful parishioners.

The pantry is open each weekday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:30-11:30 am.   Appointments can be arranged at other times by calling (516) 735-3218.


 Being a member of the St. Vincent DePaul Society (Vincentian) has enabled me to volunteer in the community in my retirement. As a nurse for fifty years, my avocation has been to reach out to others and help them to maintain not only their 
optimum physical health but an awareness of their individuality in God’s eyes. Vincentians assist our neighbors in their temporal needs while helping them gain a sense of personal responsibility and self-worth. I am truly blessed to have been called to this mission and to be among the special people in the St. Bernard’s Conference.--Pat





 Being a Vincentian is a very rewarding experience.  My fellow Vincentians at St. Bernard's are the most giving and caring people I have ever met.  Having the opportunity with St. Vincent dePaul to meet the needs of our low-income Levittown neighbors is a blessing and helps me to appreciate how fortunate I am in my own life.  I am grateful for the privilege of being able to help those in need and to experience the generosity of the people of St. Bernard's Parish who are constantly donating to our pantry.  I am able to serve God's people and respond to his Gospel. -- Ronnie
